There are few issues that unite Americans as much as our desire to know what’s in our food. Thanks to your hard work, an exciting development will be taking place in our nation’s capitol in the fight for GE labeling.
Next week, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) will be introducing the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, legislation that will require food manufacturers to inform consumers if a product contains genetically engineered ingredients.
Let you members of Congress know how important this issue is to you and your family by telling them to support this new legislation.
More GE foods, such as salmon engineered to produce growth hormones year round and apples engineered to keep from browning, could soon end up in the food supply without any independent or long-term studies, and most importantly, without labels.
Americans deserve the same right as citizens in 64 countries around the world that already require mandatory labeling of GE foods. More than 90% of consumers want to know about the food we put in our bodies and our children’s bodies, yet most of us have no way of knowing what is in the food we eat.
